A Fortuneless Cookie, Baby Slippers, & an Update

First up, no one has commented in response to the questions I posed at the end of the last post. Feel free to click here and do that. I actually want to know what makes you save fortune cookie inserts (or not).

And now, for what's happening in the world of fortune cookies:

Pam shared these two inserts, which she said were not-a-fortunes:

"Someone is looking up to you. Don't let that person down."

"You will bring sunshine into someone's life."

I told Pam that the second is an actual fortune but she says, "Maybe technically, but 'you will bring a phrase from a Stevie Wonder song into someone's life' is a pretty floppy fortune." It's tough to argue with that.

Have you seen these White Lotus "Fortune Cookies"?


Colleen sent me this pic and said the cookie is labeled "fortune cookie" but doesn't offer a fortune, even on the package. Things that make you go hmmm...

And finally, from Uncommon Goods via Myrtle, these adorable Baby Fortune Cookie Slippers, which immediately made me think of Cristina, who guest blogged here and here about her most recent pregnancy and the relevancy of fortune cookie inserts.

The tiny little inserts sticking out of the slippers say "An amazing adventure awaits you" and "From small beginnings come great things." Cristina's baby girl was born just a few weeks ago. Congratulations! Now go kiss that elephant! ;)
